Macintosh Court

Janet Kuypers
written for the 02/15/05 show “How Do I Get There?

    Excuse me. I’ve been driving for a while.
    This gas station is the first sign of life I’ve seen.
    We’ve been looking for 196 North Macintosh court for a while. The directions said we had to take a left on the street we were just on a few miles ago, but Macintosh court isn’t there. There’s a Macintosh street, and Mapquest told me of a Macintosh Avenue, but an avenue would be going the wrong way. I... I’m really confused. You’re the only attendant, here... You’re the only one that can help me. This is the address. How do I get there?
